I have been using the iPad Pro 12.9 (2018) for years and it has served me well; but recently I had the opportunity to upgrade to iPad Pro 12.9 (2021). Naturally, I jumped at the chance.

My 2018 was a faithful device, but it had some flaws that made it less and less reliable as a game and work tool. It got really hot when I played; Keyboard Folio would only record one keyboard press about once every 20 dips; and battery life has become abysmal. I needed a change.
